Seconds after Donald Trump was sworn into office, the White House’s website changed — for the worse.
WhiteHouse.gov immediately deleted pages that promoted LGBT rights, civil rights, climate change, and health care from its “issues” section.
“Could not be found” messages quickly replaced the following pages:
Shortly after the pages were removed the Climate Change page was replaced with “An America First Energy Plan” that ignores climate change entirely and says, “President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule.”
The “America First Foreign Policy” page failed to make any mention of Russia or China, instead focusing on the defeat of ISIS and the renegotiation of NAFTA and other trade deals. “If our partners refuse a renegotiation that gives American workers a fair deal, then the President will give notice of the United States’ intent to withdraw from NAFTA,” the page reads. The “Trade Deals Working for All Americans” page on Whitehouse.gov refers to the same language.
Perhaps the most shocking change to WhiteHouse.gov
The civil rights page has been replaced with a page titled, “Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community” that replaces concerns about how police act with a demand for more cops. It also hints at the fact that predominantly black inner cities are nothing more than shooting galleries.
“In our nation’s capital, killings have risen by 50 percent,” the page claims (A FALSE STATEMENT) homicides in Washington, D.C. were down in 2016 over 2015.
Oddly enough, the website doesn’t even have a page devoted to immigration — Donald Trump’s main campaigning point.

Donald Trump still needs to fill 50 essential State Department and national security positions so it might be worth a bit of Trump spam in order to keep up to date — or you can just follow Red State Disaster.
Welcome to the Red State…
